Make Your Voice Heard: Be a Citizen Not a Spectator
There are multiple ways to contribute to the democratic process and have your voice heard throughout the year. This nonpartisan presentation will focus on ways to educate and equip ourselves to be informed voters on election day as well as explore a variety of web and phone app digital resources to communicate with our elected officials.
This program is co-presented by Stacey Trewatha-Bach, MSU Office of Public Affairs Support and Jessica Balisle, MSU's Ozark Public Televisions.
